For this Essay, we will perform a Textual Analysis of an essay taken from the work Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History by Laurel Thatcher Ulrich ( b. 1938) Pp.715-724. LAUREL THATCHER ULRICH Well Behaved Women Seldom Make History Laurel Thatcher Ulrich (b. 1938) is a professor of history at Harvard University, where she was appointed the 300th Anniversary University Professor. She is author and editor of a half-dozen books, including Good Wives: Image and Reality in the Lives of Women in Northern New England, 1650-1759 (1982), The Age of Homespun: Objects and Stories in the Creation of an American Myth (2001), and Well-Behaved Women Seldom Make History (2007) from which the following essay was taken. Ulrich introduced the phrase “well-behaved women seldom make history” in a 1976 journal article titled “Virtuous Women Found: New England Ministerial Literature, 1668-1735,” about how women were characterized in Puritan funeral sermons. Much to Ulrich’s surprise, the phrase generated an explosion of cultural interest and now appears on greeting cards, T-shirts, bumper stickers, mugs, and plaques, among other places.
For Writing. Do a web search for “well-behaved women seldom [or rarely] make history” to identify three objects on which the slogan appears, and write an essay analyzing how its meaning might be understood by those who purchase them. Describe the objects and those – whether businesses, organizations, or individuals who are promoting them. What meaning do you think the promoters assume potential buyers will perceive? How closely does that meaning relate to the point Ulrich originally made with this phrase? What does your analysis reveal about the role of slogans in history?
